Chronic migraine cases are amplified by jawbone disorder, according to research
(Funda ç ã o de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de S ã o Paulo) A study conducted by researchers in Brazil shows patients with chronic migraine are three times as likely to suffer from severe temporomandibular disorder. Though not a primary cause, the disorder is thought to accentuate and perpetuate sensitivity to pain; therefore, researchers recommend in chronic migraine clinical practice the assessement of the disorder's symptoms.

Conclusion The results from this very small randomised controlled trial showed that people having LP therapy in addition to usual CFS/ME care had improved physical function, fatigue and anxiety symptoms at six months, and improved school attendance and depressive symptoms at 12 months. However, there are a number of limitations to this research that need to be considered: Participants in both groups improved, so both treatments were effective to some extent. This was a very small trial, and the results analysis involved fewer than the 100 people recruited. It would need to be repeated in a much larger group to demonstr...

Divided Democratic Party Debates Its Future as 2020 Looms
Like virtually all Democrats, Tim Ryan is no fan of Donald Trump. But as he speeds through his northeastern Ohio district in a silver Chevy Suburban, the eight-term Congressman sounds almost as frustrated with his own party. Popping fistfuls of almonds in the backseat, Ryan gripes about its fixation on divisive issues and its “demonization” of business owners. Ryan, 44, was briefly considered for the role of Hillary Clinton’s running mate last year. Now he sounds ready to brawl with his political kin. “We’re going to have a fight,” Ryan says. “There’s no question about it.&rd...

There & #039;s an App for Everything —Why Not Concussions?
Health has been a popular category ever since the arrival of the first smartphone apps. Handheld devices provide unprecedented computing to everyone, and everyone is concerned about their health. However, although concussions are a common medical condition, there are few apps designed to help patients recover. One reason is that the delivery device has an electronic screen, and physicians are well aware that screen time has the potential to delay concussion recovery.  Now, this conventional wisdom is cautiously starting to evolve. If concussion apps are carefully controlled and screen time is...

Rex Tillerson Says the U.S. Might Shutter Its Embassy in Cuba
(NEW YORK) — The Trump administration is considering closing down the recently reopened U.S. Embassy in Havana following a string of unexplained incidents harming the health of American diplomats in Cuba, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday. Tillerson’s comments were the strongest indication to date that the United States might mount a major diplomatic response, potentially jeopardizing the historic restart of relations between the U.S. and Cuba. The two former foes reopened embassies in Washington and Havana in 2015 after a half-century of estrangement. “We have it under evaluation,” Tille...

Conclusion The results of this relatively small cohort study seem to show that a plant-based Mediterranean diet with alkaline water is equally good as PPI medication at treating acid reflux symptoms when people also follow standard advice to cut out certain things from their diet. This might suggest that the first port of call for people with gastro-oesophageal reflux could be to try a Mediterranean diet before going on PPI medication, to avoid potential side effects. There are, however, some limitations to this research: Cohort studies can only show links and cannot prove definite cause and effect, and retrospective coh...
